1 Samuel 17. How David and Goliath shows us true strength amidst our worst weakness. Preached at the Navigators Winter Conference. "The overwhelming statistical ultimatums of TED Talks, the time my 160 lb brother destroyed a 250 lb challenger in an MMA match, our hyper-mania in trying to go viral, play-by-play breakdown through the ultimate cage match between David and Goliath, a time travel interview with little boy David, how true strength is shaped in behind-the-scenes in background...
2 Samuel 11-12. From PAPC in Seattle. The Joy of Following God. Part 6. Total honesty. "Finding out later to your dismay that you've been stabbed, when you don't really need prayer but just a nap and a snack, how King David is not so good at the math, Four Words That Could Save Your Life, how to cheat your taxes the Christian way, and finding your Nathan." 8-25-13
Romans 12:9-21. Series: The Names of God. Part 5. Creating a real life free of reactionary backlash. "The preacher-cliché story of my rescue dog Rosco, the back-and-forth craziness of internet comments and message boards, the uniqueness of Christian Creation account versus others, the plague of Room-Vampires who drain the life out of a room, that time I fought a bully  by yelling 'I love you,' and Seven Keys to living a Life of Action Vs. Reaction." 3-30-14
Mark 12:41-44. Series: Mark the Cosmic Journey. Part 8. Real love will cost you. "How children responded to the question: What is love?, the false Hollywood hormonal emotional pseudo-romance, when a baby congratulates his parents, how church is like a rough rock tumbler, when an entire Hillsong audience walks past a homeless guy, and how to give away $10,000." 12-1-13
1 Samuel 16:7. Series: Life of David. Part 1. You might feel like a nobody: and that's a good thing. "If you were to grade yourself on a scale of 1 to 100, how three judges at a beauty pageant can destroy the dreams of women, an awkward interview with the young King David, trying to show up your high school bullies at a talk show, and the beautiful sound of a really terrible praise team." 1-12-14
Psalm 42:1-5. Guest sermon at Refuge Full Gospel. How to handle the constant loop of your inner-voice. "My ultimate social fantasy daydream when I run for political office, growing up in the same town with the same labels, imagining that back room of rumors about you, the epidemic called Main Character Syndrome, when you crush someone with a false hologram version of them, and when God replaces your lungs." 11-15-13
John 4. Faith Struggle. Part 5. What you're really about. "That time my dad (a 9th degree black belt) put a sword to a dude's throat, black holes and wormholes and time travel, using self-pity as a permission slip for craziness, finally asking why we ever need to do homework, and a Spoken Word performance." 9-15-13

1 John 3. Series: Real Life Christian. Part 4. The Infinite Gap between ideal and reality. "When you exercise again and feel the Gap between what your body WANTS to do and what it CAN'T do, the constant awkward icky discomfort with yourself, sympathizing with Cain, the infamous dilemma of getting a million dollars with the condition of one person dying, and hearing those words, 'I'm proud of you.'" 11-11-12
2 Timothy 2:22. Preached at Refuge Full Gospel. About dating, relationships, and matters more important. "Before the dating talk: a prayer for Ferguson and Iraq and Israel and Robin Williams; the mistake we make when we focus on the methods & techniques of Christian dating, the way we hyper-romanticize mission trips and marriage, important questions to ask before pursuing our feelings and emotions, theological wisdom from Taylor Swift, how to share oxygen when you're drowning...

An interview with Sam Won of Pusuit NYC while I was in NJ to speak at a revival. We talk about finding a safe space of honesty in the church, the journey from atheism to faith, the pitfalls of blogging & going viral, how to toil behind the scenes, and how I’ve been connecting with God lately.
Romans 7-8. A message preached to Yale students about the relevance and reason of Christianity. Part 1 of 3: How the Gospel uniquely differs from every other kind of motivation. "A meta-deconstruction of the Sunday church service, how to bomb a TEDTalk, the last two things I hear from dying patients in the hospital, the haunting of l’esprit de l’escalier, de-romanticizing adoption, the list of my flaws I gave to my wife before we started dating, and how a nine-year-old showed me the...
Mark 16:13-19. The church can be crazy: but she is still God's idea to be a force for good in the world. "That very nervous moment when you bring a friend to church and you see the weirdness of Sunday service,  how I reply when someone tells me that the church is full of hypocrites, how the friction of colliding with our disagreements can turn us into fully polished people, that time a church lady hit my car in the parking lot and ran, and my very first pastor loving me from hateful...

Hosea 1-3. Series: Faith Struggle. Part 2. Motivated by grace or by guilt. "What church service looks like to an atheist outsider, why Jesus loves everyone except Bill, manipulative preacher tactics and guilt-trips, the prophet Hosea as a Korean Drama, how my first pastor uppercut my stubborn heart with grace, and how grace wrecks both the prideful and those in pain." 8-4-13
Psalm 23. Series: The Names of God. Part 4. The shepherd of our wants and needs. "The most polite argument from a British couple I've ever heard, praying for God to pull brain-wire to change your behavior, the brainwashing of Apple products, the tension between what I want and what I should want, why I'd rather have ice cream and hamburgers over good advice when I'm hurting, our two major reactions when life punches us in the gut, and the gospel of the NAVY Seals." 3-23-14
Romans 7-8. Winter Retreat 2012. 2 of 4. Our lifelong struggle. "The secret struggle of every Christian, the pretentious preacher who sounds like a gym coach, imitating someone's voice to make them sound stupid, telling your 5 year old daughter to lose 15 lbs before you can love her, hoping in public that the mom disciplines her kids right on the spot, and overcoming sickness and asthma to win the black belt championship." 12-27-12

Romans 8. Dayspring Winter Retreat. Absolute love and authority. 3 of 4."The bizarre world of X-Factor, the creepy girl who idolized me, in the passenger seat of life, and what it’s like to be the worst preacher in the history of preaching." Dec. 20, 2011

"The sudden mental replay in the shower and the late-night regret twitch, the one common denial from every patient in the hospital, when you just need a hamburger and a really long nap, the hidden fear of men getting honest, the panic moment when someone sees your text messages and...
